NY-STYLE BAGELS, CHALLAH AND BABKA — DELI CLASSICS AT MASHA’S

If you’re looking for an authentic New York taste experience right here in Berlin, Masha’s Bagels & Delicatessen has to be high on your list. Founder Alex opened this “Modern Jewish Deli” in July 2021 after starting to miss the delicious, freshly baked bagels she knew from her former NYC neighborhood. The selection at the Treptow cafe includes the classic salmon and cream cheese as well as more adventurous sweet bagels with peanut butter and jelly, and even vegan tofu and rocket. Alex bakes everything herself, including Jewish babka cakes and challah bread, with partner Nick in the kitchen to help make the perfect bagels. If you are one of the (surely rare) people who doesn’t like bagels, I’d heartily recommend the grilled cheese sandwich which consists of a trio of cheeses on toasted challah braided bread along with the surprising addition of homemade kimchi. As for the name Masha, it is a dedication to Alex’s grandmother, whose nickname was Masha or, as they say in Brooklyn, “Marcia”.
